As we’ve been talking about the UBC Line in the recent past, Peter brought this event to my attention. The Vancouver Public Space Network is hosting two workshops to discuss the Broadway corridor. Here’s the details:

Broadway Avenue is Vancouver’s great east-west axis. But what would it take to transform it into a Great Street — one that was more about being a place than a conduit?

The Vancouver Public Space Network is using the occasion of the City’s planning review of Broadway Corridor to explore the components of great streets and to identify ways that Broadway – it’s public realm, it’s function as a transportation artery, its role as a social space – could be enhanced. But to do this well, we need your help.

We’re looking for interested Vancouverites who would be willing to participate in one of two facilitate workshops that we’ll be holding on Broadway Avenue. They take place, early evening, at the following dates:

Monday, June 28, 2010 @ 7pm – Mount Pleasant Neighbourhood House (800 East Broadway)

Tuesday, July 6, 2010 @ 7pm – Kitsilano Neighbourhood House (2325 West 7th Avenue)
